Despite the fact that there is a risk of contracting COVID-19. A flower bouquet is unlikely to become a carrier of infection. The interviewed doctors told RIA Novosti about this.
The upcoming International Women's Day is considered the day of spring, female beauty, spiritual wisdom and attention to a woman, regardless of her status and age.
"When we live in an epidemic, the probability of infection always exists. The risk that the coronavirus will be transmitted through a bouquet of flowers, including one intended for an elderly woman, is virtually absent - a very low probability," said Anatoly Altshtein, MD, virologist.
The doctor stressed that giving flowers to women on March 8 is not only possible, but also necessary.
Also, do not be afraid of contracting coronavirus in a flower shop. This was announced by the head physician of the Leader of Medicine medical center, infectious disease doctor Yevgeny Timakov.
"Doors constantly open in flower shops. Since the premises themselves are often not huge, they are constantly ventilated. There is no need to be afraid of getting infected, but all measures must be followed," Timakov said.
